 It would be nice if Cabal could build executables that could be told where
 to get their data files (etc), instead of always hard-wiring them to the
 installation dirs. Perhaps an environmental variable could be used to
 specify where the data files are. This would enable us to run applications
 "in-place", i.e. from the source directory directly, which would be useful
 for test suites, for example.
